Forever I Am!

If you had read my future wife's recent blog post entitled "Forever: Take Two", this is a recapulation of exactly what went on the night before leading up to the proposal night.  Many friends have asked about how and what was done, so let me try to explain and hopefully you will find it as romantic as it can be despite its simplicity.

Over two months now, I have been speaking with my sisters on staging my proposal.  Having considered and heard a variety of other ideas of proposals and how each friend of mine did theirs, it became clear that I needed to be creative and make this a memorable showcase of love and commitment that will be asked for.

Contemplating on an idea that stuck with me for quite some time, but would have cost me a great deal of money as well that would have involved at least 10 people in the process while another 50 or so individuals to witness.  All these were in my mind and yet I was not sold on the idea as it did not constitute a perfect day that I wanted, that I expected.

The day her ring arrived, I believe I was more excited than she was.  I couldn't help it, I needed her to know I had the ring on my palm as I viewed this stunning, elegantly placed rock that reflected light at every angle possible.  I was amazed by its beauty.

So the evening came and I couldn't sleep.  I had just came back from Japan the day before, cleared my office of the work required of me during the day, took a relaxing evening, but yet I couldn't sleep. I pondered on the thought of when shall I propose, where and how.  Ofcourse, I bought myself some time and told Boni that maybe in 4-5 weeks after I will do that and her faced dropped, but again, that was merely buying planning time...LOL.

That day before bed, I asked for my children to spend an evening with me the next day.  I recieved the approval and all along I was thrilled as I will be spending time with all the children, a family, together as one.  The morning came and all I thought of was seeing my children today. I Got ready and off to work to get my day started.  It hit me! I was going to have all the children together, originally I was planning for a Pizza hut outing, but relaizing the opportunity at hand, I changed plans and switched gears. I called friends for helping me stage my proposal with my family altogether.  Prepared a nice dinner, arranged for a bottle of wine, spoke to the children and asked for their permission on my actions for this evening.  They were all in it, they supported the actions and waited anxiously for my cue. Boni was expressing in her blog about our two children laying on the floor, under the table, atop the table, yup, they were busy and having fun.  It was a difficult moment as I tried to gather all my thoughts, distracted by the noise emminating from the young ones. So I just looked at her and blurted out, "this is my perfect day!  I have the family altogether and I want you to be my wife, will you marry me?" It was then I had the ring in my hand and opened for her to see its beauty, a masterpiece in itself.  Boni was stunned and I believe she really did not hear a word I said, but the vieweing of her engagement ring was enough to captivate her and shut out everything around her for that particular moment. "Yes, Yes"..  she replied and stood up for a kiss and hug.  I am the happiest of all and forever I am.

She calls everyone, it spreads like wildfire, I can see her happiness in her eyes, her lifted spirits of knowing that she does have a second chance to love again and be loved.  I love this woman, I too thought I would never find someone merely for the reasons that I have loved completely in my past.  I was wrong, I love more now than ever.
